Abstract/Contents:Overviews the use of reinforcement materials to prevent soil compaction, turfgrass wear, and unstable surfaces. Proposes research "to investigate the effect of three synthetic reinforcement materials used in a silt loam and sand rootzone matrix on 1) wear tolerance of a cool season turf blend used for sports fields; 2) surface playing quality; 3) soil compaction; and 4) water infiltration rate and air porosity." This research has not been completed so no data is included in the article.
